My September Favorites

Oct 1, 2016

Even though September is now officially over and the leaves are starting to change, I thought I should write about my favorites for the month. You also may have noticed that I haven't published anything since August 28! That's more than a month ago! The reason for my absent is school. Oh, school why do you take up so much of my time. But for real, I have been so busy with school work and after school activities that I have pushed this little blog to the side. I hope to find a time to sit down and write a couple of different blog posts for you. My plan is to write a new blog post every 5 or so days so I can get back in the habit of writing these. But anywho, let's get on with my September favorites.

The first thing I am going to start off with is my (very snazzy) school pencils! I love stationary, personally because for one they have the cutest designs and it keeps me very organized in a way. I found these pencils at Target and picked them up for only a dollar. I loved them so much that I picked up a couple of other packs too. I absolutely adore them. They are super cute and have a nice theme of colors. They went perfectly with my whole theme for my school supplies. The only thing with these pencils is I don't like sharing these them with people because they have a tensing to take them and never give them back. I have already had this happen to me and I don't want my own money being wasted.

Next up is something beauty-ish related. I have been loving this Lush shower gel called Twilight. Now, to be completely honest with you, I really didn't know what a shower gel was so I had to look it up cause I didn't want to use it wrong and then have it ruin anything. But anyway, I got this in a gift set on my birthday by my good friend Lizzie. The box came with this shower gel, a bath bomb, and body creme. All of it is lavender scented and is supposed to make you feel relaxed. This shower gel is purple and had little silver shimmery sparkles at the bottom that you can shake in and it makes the body wash really sparkly and pretty. Side note, I might be doing a review on the whole package so if you are interested, make sure to tell me in the comments.

My next favorite is my school planner. I have already done a whole blog post on this so go check it out here to have a better look at it and see what I have inside.

My fourth September favorite is my pottery jar I painted with Katie. We went to a local pottery painting shop for a little get together one afternoon. I found my inspiration on Pinterest by this pin that was a plant starter jar with a really cute face on it and I knew I wanted to recreate it myself. I am very pleased with how it turned out. My favorite part is the petite looking face. I was super afraid when I was painting it because I really didn't want to mess up. I remember practicing for a long time so I could get it right. The only thing now is I don't know what to store in it. I can't put a real plant because it doesn't have the holes on the bottom so the roots and water can escape. I think my plan is to just put in a fake succulent in it. What do you think?

Next up is my Philosophy perfume! My mom found this at Marshalls for $26 and told me that it was actually a very good deal for 4 of the small bottle perfumes. The funny thing is the lady who was checking us out told us that this was a huge sellout and you're lucky to find it in the stores. The box came with 4 small perfumes in "Inner Grace", "Love Sweet Love", "Unconditional Love" and "Giving Grace". Personally, my favorite is "Love Sweet Love". I enjoy sweet smells and this one is definitely one of those. Another thing that I love about these is the little quotes on the boxes of each perfume. The quote on "Inner Grace" is Philosophy: quiet your mind and open your heart.

My next favorite is a book called "Red Queen" by Victoria Aveyard. I have been dying to read this book ever since it came out in 2015. It's been on my reading bucket list and I haven't gotten to it until now. My friend brought me a gift card to Barnes and Nobles for my birthday so I decided to use the money on this book. But sadly, now that I have this book I have not picked it up to start reading it. I feel like I haven't been in the biggest reading mood lately so when the feeling comes back this book will be my first reading choice.

My very last thing on my September favorite list is a little mason jar that my friend Katie made me for my
birthday. It's a jar that she decorated with stickers and fabric washi tape that is intended to put our little memories we shared together. Right now I have notes, polaroid pictures of us and just other fun stuff we can came and look back on. I can't wait to fill it up with more memories with her.

If you have any September favorites that you have been liking comment them down below. I would love to read them! Also, I want to start writing some Fall/Halloween blog posts so if you have any suggestions please put them in the comment and maybe I will write about your topic! ;) I am open to ALL suggestions so don't be afraid to comment.
 Love you all!


  1. That stationary is so cute! I'm the same, having nice stationary keeps me more organised! I bought The Red Queen a while back as well and still haven't read it, I've heard so many good things about it though! xxx

    1. Thank you so much for reading! :) Hopefully I will be able to read the book soon. xLiddy
